  1. So cool, but it also means my Atari would become obsolete after I transfer those sounds to this thing.
    Buying another one for the D50 is still more costly than the 2nd hand price for the Atari, so I think I will keep my Atari. Makes me feel nostalgic too.
    Great these guys are making this though. DX-7’s seem to become more popular again.

    1. +1!

      There are currently 3rd-party carts for the ESQ-1/SQ-80 but nothing yet for VFX/SD-1. I would most definitely be interested (but a floppy emulator would also be pretty cool)

  2. Cool, especially thoughtful that they also support 3rd party extensions on those synths!
    Never heard of this before, so you scored a great added value there synthopia! Thanks.
